GW Hosts Screening of "Living for 32" Documentary in Remembrance of The Virginia Tech Tragedy

GW Hosts Screening of "Living for 32" Documentary in Remembrance of The Virginia Tech Tragedy

April 16th marks the fifth anniversary of the Virginia Tech massacre which took place in Blacksburg, Va in 2007. 

32 lives were lost that day in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history as well as the lone gunman who later killed himself.

We all remember where we were when news of a gunman on Tech's campus was announced. I was walking to one of my many journalism classes at my university, which was 2.5 hours from Tech.  I recall looking down at my phone to a mass number of missed calls and text messages from college friends asking if I had heard the news. At that time, some of my best friends from high school went to Tech and I was very worried about them. Thank goodness they were okay, but that day changed campus life forever at Virginia Tech and across the country.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

I recently watched the movie Snow White while babysitting for a friend’s daughter so she could get out.  The last time I had seen the movie was many years ago when I watched it with my kids.  As I have witnessed many times in the past couple of decades, the message of Positive Self Talk was loud and clear. 

When the evil queen asked, “Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest one of all?” The mirror’s reply, “Snow White” made the evil Queen furious. You see, it wasn’t enough for the Queen that she was beautiful.  Instead, the Queen chose to see that she wasn’t enough. There was someone more beautiful than she.

Local Ice Cream Participating in Walmart's "Get On The Shelf " Campaign

Local Ice Cream Participating in Walmart's "Get On The Shelf " Campaign

 

Gaithersburg resident, Valerie Ross, has entered her southern style, hand-churned ice cream into Walmart’s “Get On The Shelf Program," a contest that discovers great products and small businesses. This program allows anyone up until April 4th to submit a product to be voted on by the public. The competition is tough with over 4,000 brands in the running. The top 10 products from the first round will go to the final round of voting, which takes place between April 11th and April 24th.

After being laid off in 2009, Ross created "BOSS Ice Cream" to pay for her daughter’s college tuition. This ice cream is based on a family recipe passed down through generations since the 1800’s.

This super premium ice cream produced in Gaithersburg “keeps it real,” as Ross says, with no preservatives or additives. It’s also an egg and gluten free product.
